The South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) was established by section 2 of the Project and Construction Management Professions Act (No. 48 of 2000) hereafter referred to as ‘the Act’ to regulate Project and Construction Management professions to protect the public. In doing so it is required to take administrative action as empowered by the Act. The SACPCMP strives to do so in line with the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and as such must adhere to the principles ascribed therein.
It is also required by the SACPCMP to ensure that high professional and ethical standards are upheld by professionals through adherence to the Code of Conduct for Registered Persons. This may result in cases of improper conduct against registered persons. Therefore, cases of improper conduct and the grievance procedure in relation to registration must be fairly adjudicated and there must be adherence to the relevant legislation in the implementation of appeals and tribunals.
The aim of this policy is to set out the principles that govern the appeals and tribunals implemented by the SACPCMP.
